Default Just put my Rc Car Gearing app on Android market :-D

Hi,

Didn't really find a good place to post this on the forum, so I did it here.

I just put a little application I've been working on Android market. So if you have a Android phone, give it a try and let me know what you think of it.

I use it for calculating top speeds and grearing of my cars, good to have when you want to change motor or battery and gear for same top speed etc ...

Hope you like it, my first app on the market, kind of proud.

Edit app name: Rc Car Gearing

Just pick a speed that you like to reach, and then the application can help you with what gearing you need to reach it. All you need to do is to put in the kv of your motor, the diameter of your wheels, the internal gear ratio (gearbox + diff) and then just pay with different spurs and pinions in the software and it will show you what speed you will get.

Thanks for the comments, KV is how much the motor spinns per voltage. A motor at 1000kv spinns 1000rpm at 1 volt and 7400 rpm at 7.4 volts for example.

Im working on a new version of the app and I'll try and implement the function you want, I think I know what you mean, I try and make it happen in the next version. ;-)

Yup this is the most complete gearing app I've seen. Too bad I have an iPhone. Any way to get it out on iPhone Micke?
